Parker County received a clean financial audit for fiscal
year 2016 at Monday’s Commissioners Court meeting, showing emergency reserves
of over $14 million in the general fund.
Jackie Gonzalez with
the firm of Weaver and Tidwell, L.L.P. said she was very pleased with the
result of the audit and work of the county to assist the outside auditors.
“We are issuing an
unmodified opinion, which is a clean opinion,” Gonzalez said.
A highlight of the
report indicated the county’s general fund emergency reserves of $14 million
with $13.8 million of that unrestricted.
“Through hard work
and conservative budgeting practices, along with a great job from our Auditor
Mike Rhoten, we have been successful at building up our reserves,” County Judge
Mark Riley said.
Riley and Precinct
4 Commissioner Steve Dugan complimented Rhoten and his staff for the good work
they do to help manage the county’s finances.
Rhoten said this
audit was memorable for its’ smooth process.
“I am very pleased
with this audit, it is one of the best that we have had,” Rhoten said. “The
process was efficient and quick. I am proud of my staff for a job well done.”
